Burak Yilmaz is believed to be a major summer transfer target for Arsenal, according to the Daily Express.

The Turkish goal-machine scored 8 of Galatasaray’s 14 Champions League goals this season and has been tipped with a move away from Istanbul. The Turkish champions added Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba in January transfer window in an effort to succeed in Europe’s premier club competition, but Yilmaz was the real star of the Champions League for Gala.

Reports in Italian media indicate Burak Yilmaz could fetch £15m in the summer, but that may put off Premier League side, Arsenal. Yilmaz has 22 goals in 25 starts in the Turkish Super Lig.

Yilmaz admitted that: “If an offer comes on the table then it’s the club’s decision which will matter,”

Would Yilmaz be a good addition to the improving Arsenal XI?
